alright guys need some help. last week i fried my hdmi board on a 891 switching inputs without turning off the receiver, I know my dumba$$. well last night i decided to bring it out to play with it before actually going out and deciding on a new avr. So long story short i got everything to work connecting my pc>fiio e18>891 cd rca input but the sub isn't working. Is there a way of getting my sub to work and a way to adjust the sound? My headphones sound good coming out of the receiver but my speakers sound like trash.

Set the speakers to SMALL/80Hz.

Hey guys, new to all this and any help will be great! I have a Denon AVR-891 and it will turn on for about 5 seconds, display "main zone on" on the screen then turns it's self off. A flashing red light then displays around the on/standby button. Any ideas how to fix this? Cheers

The most common problem is a loose speaker wire from one post touching another post. Is the red light flashing quickly (eg. 2x/sec) or more slowly (eg. every 2 sec)?

That's sounds pretty feasible. Haven't had the chance to check the speaker wires and don't really know what I'm looking at but there is definitely a short there somewhere as it will run without fail when I have the outer cover off but as soon as I put it back on it shorts out. That red light flashes slowly. About once every 2 seconds. Sounds like an easy fix if I can locate the loose wire. Will keep tinkering with it and see how I go. Thanks heaps!

A slow flashing light generally means a "poor ventilation" issue causing the unit to heat up. Is there sufficient open room around the AVR (eg. at least 3-4") and not inside an enclosed cabinet?

Yeh I got it given to me off a mate because he was having issues with ventilation and tripping out. He tried running it in the open and ontop of a fan forced pad for laptops to push cool air through it but that didn't work. When I run it without the cover off in an open space it works perfect but as soon as I put the cover back on it trips. I'm guessing there is a loose wire that is shorting out.

Will This Work?

Connect DirecTV HD box with component to AVR1911; assign component to V. AUX; associate V. AUX with HD Radio -- all this so when I select HD Radio on the AVR I will get audio from the radio but video from the sat. receiver. Will it work (especially for HD video sources, i.e., sports)?
